Genesis Chapter 3 Discussion

    Yes I do... Jesus Christ is GOD "Romas 9:5".
  • Sonny on Genesis 3
    I still do not understand, if creation was do perfect and the world newly created and all was godly, just where exactly did evil come from?

    Since it was newly created and there was no other place mentioned again so seems like there was an error in some form, and then from the research I've done, a serpent was also referred to as an elder, and in more research there's a discussion of other forms of life, which other religions such as in India.

    The serpent races are recorded thru history as are the ocean going mermen and merwomen which a race was discovered by Jaque Cousteau son a few years back on digital camera actually coming up and peering in the the underwater sub as well as three remains found in California on the beach.

    I believe whatever exists living is created by God. If there are aliens it's just something else created by God.

    When it comes to creation there's alot of gaps in time, books added, books removed, politics.

    Example, Romans crucified Christ, the Sadducees and Pharisees were the ruling religious political parties of the times, I'd suggest they wanted Christ out of the way more then the Romans.

    Satan was a created archangel. When he was ejected from Heaven (with 1/3 angels; turned demons)

    They have no bodies. They have to borrow bodies to do their evil. Evil humans give their bodies to do evil. Demons can borrow animal,reptile, etc.

    Satan didn't have Dominion or Authority to do anything to born again Christians; but the Christians must be taught what they have in Christ. Ephesians 6

    Look at Hollywood! Way more movies on occult, sci-fi, and humans hurting humans. Very very few scriptural Bible films.

    Humans were given Dominion in Genesis by God.

    Only Bible readers would know that. Jesus defeated Satan by being crucified and then Resurrected. Christians have the same AUTHORITY to defeat Satan's strategies against us. It's done in prayer on our knees.

    Most people just want to come home and watch tv or play online games.

    Bad things happen to good people/Christians because we don't want to do the hard stuff that produces salvations, healings, deliverance from Satan's attacks. We don't need to be blaming God for our inability to follow the example of Jesus.

    What would happen if we walked out on the back porch and yelled out loud: in Jesus Name, by His power and Authority, I take Dominion over every demonic strategy to hurt me and my family and loved ones. I bind your evil plans and cast you OUT OF THIS HOUSE







    I ask the Lord, to release warring angels to enforce and protect this prayer; minister to and guard those this prayer covers. Cover me and favor my family, Lord Jesus,

    I give you thanksgiving, my praise to you, worship and honor. Impart to me discernment so I may stand in the watchtower and be vigilant against Satan's attacks. I rebuke the Spirit of Slumber! Holy Spirit teach me how I should pray for all my concerns. I receive it, in the Name of Jesus. AMEN! HALLELUJAH

    Brother Sonny, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Most people are taught by the traditions of man, very few study themselves and let the Spirit reveal the truth to them.

    Romans 8:20 For the CREATURE (CREATION) was made SUBJECT TO VANITY (evil), not WILLINGLY, but by REASON of him who hath SUBJECTED the same (creation) in HOPE. (Becoming ONE with their CREATOR).

    Ponder on the tree of KNOWLEDGE of good and evil.

    That knowledge exist TOGETHER, you can't have the KNOWLEDGE of good without also having the KNOWLEDGE of evil.

    After partaking of this KNOWLEDGE of good and evil, God said, behold they (creation) have become like one of us to KNOW good and evil.

    This KNOWLEDGE is necessary to become LIKE GOD.

    John 17:21 That they (creation) ALL may BE ONE; as thou Father, art ONE IN ME, and I IN THEE, that thou also may be ONE IN US: that the world MAY BELIEVE that thou has SENT ME.

    Colossians 1:27 ... this mystery....CHRIST IN YOU.....

    Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne (you are the throne of CHRIST)( Revelation 20:4) proceeded lighting, and thunder and voices: BURNING ( Isaiah 4:4) before the throne (you are the throne of CHRIST)( Revelation 20:4), which (lighting, thunder, voices) ARE the SEVEN Spirits of God (now in you).

    Isaiah 11:2 And the (first is the) SPIRIT of the LORD (Father) shall rest upon him (Christ (in you)), the (second) spirit of WISDOM, and (the third spirit of) UNDERSTANDING, the (forth) spirit of COUNSEL and (the fifth spirit of) MIGHT, the (sixth) spirit of KNOWLEDGE and (the seventh spirit) of the FEAR of the Lord.

    When we no longer have to SUFFER IN THE FLESH we will BE ONE WITH THE FATHER AND SON.

    I want to start reading the holy Bible but idk if I should start to read the new testament or the old.
  • Rod - in Reply on Genesis 3
    I would suggest that you start in the new testament, starting with the four gospels, as this is the ministry of Jesus, and the salvation of the cross, as Jesus says in Matthew 5:17 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil". in other words fulfilling of the old testament and its laws and prophecy, and starting from the book of Acts to up to Revelations is the spreading of his gospel, But wherever you decide to start may God bless you on that journey.
  • Lane - in Reply on Genesis 3
    any place is a great place to start reading God's word
  • A - in Reply on Genesis 3
    I started from Genesis. Take your time. I make annotations and sometimes I have to go back to make sure I understand. I think that will help you understand why other things happened later on the Bible.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Since Jesus is our Savior, it makes sense to read the 4 Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John.

    To learn who Jesus is, and every moment of his life on earth.

    You might want to pause and consider Matthew24 and Luke 21, Because these are the passages Jesus speaks of the End Times.

  • Larry Jacobs on Genesis 3
    Was Cain slaying Abel the second sin of man and for this reason was Cain known as the evil seed.
  • Dianne - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Larry Jacobs Gen. 3 There are those that believe that Eve had sex with the serpent, that's not possible because of physical law spirit cannot have sex with five senses flesh. That being said cain committed the first murder the shedding of innocent blood, then look at the punishment Gen. 3:11-16 cain became cursed from the earth and when you tillest the ground it will not yield its strength, he became a vagabond or wanderer no place to hide. Just as we are born again of Gods seed holy spirit, cain was the first man spiritually born of seed of the serpent spiritually totally corrupt. In the bible they are known as men of belial, the word belial means worthless reckless lawless wicked men, men of the earth and many other names, In the gospel of John 8:44 Jesus Christ went up against these men verse 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot here my word. Next verse Ye are of your father the devil and the lust of your father ye will do, it is not flesh and blood it is spiritual which is why they will die in there sin it is seed. Remember Ephesians 6:12 this is a spiritual battle not senses. I've met Christians that got born again who were satan worshppers but that doesn't mean they were born of the devil.
  • Larry Jacobs - in Reply on Genesis 3
    The bible states that Adam is Cain's father my question was concerning other sins before Cain Slew Abel. Did the serpent have another form before he was cursed? Was the eating the forbidden fruit and Adam being deceitful toward the initial sins or were there other sins' committed by man prior to Cain slaying Abel?
  • Dianne - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Larry Sin is broken fellowship with God I.E. going against His Word, the word serpent in genesis is figurative language for the slyness by which Eve was deceived, the two who first broke Gods word were Adam and Eve there actions went against the only thing God told them not to do. The consequences of their actions man has paid for ever since but was paid for by Jesus Christ.
  • Larry Jacobs - in Reply on Genesis 3
    And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:" Was the serpent crawling on it's belly prior to being cursed? Did God create the serpent? Was the Serpent in a different form? Was the serpent deceived by Satan? Was Cain also deceived or over comed by Satan's power to be also known as the evil seed?
  • Dianne - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Larry Who or what was the serpent in eden, that is a description of operation of our adversary the devil. Here are some other scripture references, Revelation 12:9 notice called the devil, satan that old serpent also 1 Peter 5: Be sober be vigilant for your adversary the devil as a roaring lion walketh about seeking whom he may devour notice in two verses we have 5 different descriptions devil satan serpent adversary roaring lion, these are different descriptions in Gods Word of His methods of operation and there's more. So your question is not a cut and dry answer.

    Larry Jacobs , hi , sin is disobedience to a command from God , some thing is not a sin until God says : don't do this , and then you do it , that is sin . Where there is law there is disobedience , where there are no laws there aren't any sins . We only know for sure what has been written and preserved for our benefit , other than that we may speculate but that's all .
  • Lystra George on Genesis 3
    And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

    would like to understand what God meant by this verse.
  • Vince - in Reply on Genesis 3

    I think God is having Eve know that she has child bearing seeds in her and her offsprings will be at odds with the animals; the animals being represented by the serpent. Remember, the whole garden of Eden story is the introduction of the knowledge of good and evil. I hope this helps. VINCE.
  • Sacha - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Lystra George ,you can take this literally ,humans and snakes ? We dont usually get on too well ,there is a symbolical meaning too ,im sure the symbolism will be revealed to you as you read your Bible ,i could tell you but it would spoil it for you ,just take it as literal for now .
  • Alex on Genesis 3
    Wow, this version is really interesting. I have studied almost always from the New International Version but a few times from the Living Bible too.
  • Sally on Genesis 3:6
    Genesis 3:6

    "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat."

    Don't eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

    God's word is wisdom.

    first Timothy 6:6

    But godliness with contentment is great gain

    Satsn is a beguiler
  • Vince - in Reply on Genesis 3:6
    Gen. 3:6

    It's showing that both Adam and Eve were watching the serpent eating the fruit in front of them thus convincing them that there is no death in the fruit. VINCE.
  • Jael on Genesis 3
    What does verse 24 mean ( child version)
  • Vince - in Reply on Genesis 3

    Gen. 3:24

    This shows the first exodus. Notice in all the exoduses in the Bible there is a death then a curse and then a movement or exodus. When God is about to do something great, a death takes place then a curse and finally a movement. Vince.
  • Sf on Genesis 3
    God will work against those that don't honor him.

    love your weaknesses like Paul. if Satan is telling you of your lack then you know he is covering up the greater thing that you posses so you'll lose it.

    godliness with contentment is great gain.

    bow your heart to your king.

    Rebecca, the fast that the Lord wants is found in Isaiah 58
  • William - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Isaiah 58th chapter is a great commentary by God on fasting.
  • Genesis 3:13

    "And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat."

    1 Peter 2:22

    Verse (Click for Chapter)

    King James Bible

    Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth

    King James Bible

    Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
  • Victor on Genesis 3
    two questions:

    1. Genesis 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden,

    does this mean tree of life and tree of the knowledge of good and evil are the same?

    2. Genesis 3:5 and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

    how to understand "gods" here?
